“Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer says people in the remote Eastern Oregon settlement of Greenhorn may need to evacuate if a nearby fire continues to*grow.”:
East Oregonians Prepare To Flee Fire » News » OPB

Probably won't be too difficult to do because “As of the 2010 census, the population was 0”: Greenhorn, Oregon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here's what the another news source said about the current evacuation. The 2010 Census put the population at zero, but people still have homes, cabins and mining claims in the area. “We made contact with a lot of folks, and they were already aware of the fire, and moving heavy equipment from the mines and off private property to a more safe and secure location,” Palmer said. Some animals, including horses, have been moved to a corral in Granite, he added.

There is a chance that hamellr, our resident ghost town explorer, might have some pictures of Greenhorn.

If the evacuees move to Granite, population 24, it will be the fastest growing community in Oregon.

More then a chance, but not a lot of pictures. The last time I was up there was at about 6am in the morning and I was getting the stink eye from locals.

Here is what the town used to look like:

All these buildings are gone.


And what it looks like now

This would have been a shed/barn behind one of the buildings on main street.


This is now the "City Hall."

There are about a dozen newer homes in the area. Including a log cabin that is still new enough that the logs are yellow brown instead of "been left in the sun too long brown."

It's not a very dense forest, so if the fire comes through it's going to take everything out.

Here is GreenHorn:
